This wonderful, tangy sauce really compliments the flavor of grilled swordfish steaks. Serve with the cucumber sauce, and the combination of flavors are wonderful. This is my favorite way to have swordfish. You may add some diced hot peppers or spices if you would prefer some heat. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Stir the cucumber, sour cream, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a small bowl until combined. Season to taste with salt, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour in the chili sauce, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes to blend the flavors. Season with black pepper, and remove from the heat.
  3. Brush the swordfish steaks on all sides with the 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Cook on the preheated grill until the fish is no longer translucent in the center, and easily flakes with a fork, about 3 minutes per side. Baste with the chili sauce while grilling. Serve the swordfish with lemon slices and the cucumber sauce.

Keni turned me on to this tonight, and I'm glad she did. I was skeptical because I enjoy swordfish as is, with just some lemon and s&p. But, I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised!! I loved the flavors of the cucumber sauce and the bbq coated swordfish. The only thing I did different, and only because I did not have an onion, was that I used a shallot instead. I will be posting pics on my page tonight. Great recipe, awesome flavor, and it does not overpower that delicious swordfish flavor. Thanks Cyndi! (and keni, for the suggestion!)

I love this dish. I like spicy food so I used a thai pepper and garlic chili sauce and it was great.

Wow! Hubby & I LOVED this! I left out the lemon zest & the addition of the lemon slice at the end. Unbelievably good! The cool cucumber sauce was incredible w/the spice of the swordfish. I'll definately be having this again-maybe even trying it on other fish too! Thanks Cyndi!!
